My girlfriend is currently pregnant to someone. Complicated so please dont go there. It was an unwanted pregnancy, a mistake even though its hard to call it that, but she is not able to have an abortion due to beliefs as she sees it as killing a life and it was her mistake in the first place. It now threatens to break us up as I cannot father the child and be with her cos of it. She does love me and I her, we are convinced we should be together but she cant morally have an abortion and Im not strong enough to cope with standing there as she has someone elses child. She has miscarried before. She is now 8 weeks pregnant and experienced cramps in her stomach a few days ago and it lasted most of the day. Late that night she bled quite bright red blood, with clots, one grape sized. Pink disccharge that did smell a little. Not a huge amount of blood but more than just small drops, quarter of a cup. She has had sore thighs and twinges inside vagina. Dark stools. She went to hospital where the baby was still found to have a heartbeat. They gave her an injection of some sort and sent her home for bed rest and said she was high risk of losing baby. The cervix was slightly open but I think they are waiting to see if it closes again. She has been passing urine a lot today. Hormones such as feeling sexually aroused and having sore breasts are all still there and I understand they can be even after a miscarry, so that doesnt tell you much. Can baby still have a heartbeat even after a miscarry? Has anyone any idea as to why the symptoms of a miscarriage yet it doesnt seem to have been this? or has it? or are these very likely to be the signs the start of a miscarriage over the next few days? Any advice is appreciated - nature is about to determine what happens to the rest of our lives. The father has never wanted anything to do with the child and she wants nothing to do with him - the poor kid wouldnt have a supporting father if it was born.
